"Sometimes, words are unnecessary when actions have already said it all."
People often talk and make big promises, but their actions don't match up with their words. Many times, non-verbal communication reveals the truth. #psychology #selfhelp #WordsVsActions
When actions shout and words fall silent
"Ever stop to think about how your actions are telling your story, even when you're not saying a word? Sometimes, you don't need to hear 'I love you' to feel it. An unexpected hug, a 'did you get home okay' text in the middle of the night, morning coffee made just how you like it. Actions like these speak volumes.
But hold up, it's not all rainbows and butterflies. Actions can also scream things we'd rather not hear. A text left on 'read,' a broken promise, eyes that won't meet yours. You don't need to hear 'I don't love you anymore' to feel it. When someone lets you down, their actions are like a blaring alarm, even if their words try to hit the mute button.
So, whether it's for better or worse, actions don't lie. There's no better 'fact-check' than watching what someone actually does, not what they say. Because at the end of the day, words are unnecessary when actions have already said it all."

I said "I love you," you replied with a like,
thought you were different, but you're all stereotype.
I talk of forever, you say Netflix and chill,
fell for your story, but it's just a profile still.
You promised me stars, gave me neon lights,
say you're my other half, but you're just a swipe.
Your love's in HD, but your feelings in pixel,
sold me a universe, but you're just an emoji in Excel.
"Doing okay?" you ask, as you stick in the knife,
your silence speaks louder than a viral speech's life.
Here I am, reading between the lines of a chat,
where your actions shout everything, love? Not even a hashtag at that.
Sweet words, yeah, but actions are few,
your love's as real as a unicorn, too.
So keep your likes, while I seek something true,
'cause at the end of the day, actions are my main cue.
